Bird Drawing by lilly-peacecraft Bird Drawing by lilly-peacecraft
This is a finish render drawing of a bird that I did for my 2D class back in my Freshman Foundation Studies year at Columbus College of Art & Design. If I can remember right about the assignment it was a 6 part process. I only save about 3 of the pieces.

Anyway feel free to comment on this piece and let me know what you think.

You're really good at drawing birds -- I saw one in your high school gallery that was awesome, too. I love how the talons look real on this, the way they're at an angle that makes the bird look as though it's about to fly out of the confines of the paper.

I like it, there's contrast. My art teacher keeps yelling at my graphite pictures, cause I only use a mechanical pencil XD.

Thanks! I really appropriate it! Well for this piece I'd used an graphic H2, H3, HB, B2, B3, B4 pencils.

(Maybe an suggestion is to get a set of graphic pencils that has variety of H pencils and B pencils and such. These pencils help with shadowing and technique. At least they have for me and I have been using them close to 10 years now. My next step to try out copic makers! ^_^)

I love the beautiful proportions and the smooth shading.

I think that maybe the contrast between the white paper and the dark shading is a bit much, so possibly slightly lighter highlights on the bird, and a touch of shadow in the background?

Other than that minor detail, excellent work right here. You should draw more realism animals, since you seem to be so good at them. Oh, and, this piece merits a favorite, of course.

Well this is an scan of my original, but thanks for the suggestion about the background. This piece is really over 5 years old. It's part of my College pieces that I've scan in and posted here. ^_^
